David R. HendersonDavid R. Henderson
Associate Professor of Economics, Naval Postgraduate School; Research Fellow, Hoover Institution. Author, The Joy of Freedom: An Economist’s Odyssey

To overcome the new threat of terrorism and a faltering economy, must freedom be restricted? Americans hold that freedom makes economic progress and the good society possible—yet many support curtailing freedom during national emergencies. Economist David R. Henderson, however, holds that freedom is as important during wartime and recession as it is during peacetime and prosperity. Based on his insightful and inspiring new book, The Joy of Freedom, Dr. Henderson demonstrated the power of individual choice and free markets to improve education, health, the environment, community, culture, and much more. Not only is the intellectual battle for freedom exciting and just, according to Dr. Henderson, it is crucial for ensuring lasting peace, security and harmony.
